Youngstown schools provide more kids with breakfast

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown City School District’s efforts to make sure its pupils get a nutritious breakfast every school day has won recognition from The Children’s Hunger Alliance.

Representatives of the statewide nonprofit agency were in the city today, joining school officials at 7 a.m. at P. Ross Berry Middle School as children at the school were having breakfast in the cafeteria.

Youngstown had a 9 percent increase in the number of children eating breakfast in the schools last year, the second-highest growth rate among Ohio’s public school districts, said Julie Accetta, a Hunger Alliance spokeswoman.
